Q. Our friends have recommend having a videographer, but we didn't put it in the budget. Should we move things around and prioritise booking one?

A. Helen Faubel says: I've never heard of anyone regretting having a videographer at their wedding, especially one who is discreet. The best filmmakers let the day unfold in front of their lens without any unnecessary staged shots or intrusive behaviour.

Most of my couples hardly realise I'm there, which means they can enjoy the day and not worry about the camera. It also means I'm able to capture those special moments that would otherwise be missed. This reportage style produces the best cinematic results, with brides and grooms looking natural on film.

While flowers fade and cakes get eaten, a wedding video can be treasured forever.
